It's a far cry from "Sk8er Boi," but damn, Avril can SING.

Sister Winter B/W Rest - Joseph

Some heavenly harmonies to make the winter feel a little less bitter.

"Silhouettes" - American Football

This first single off of the band's third self-titled album only heightens the expectations for what has yet to come.

"Shelter" - Christinna O

The first commercial release of this accomplished spoken-word poet (and it's a serious vibe, too).

Eris exudes the kind of confidence I want to channel in 2019.

"Busy Tone" - Mae Muller

For when he just won't take a hint.

"Light On" - Maggie Rogers

Stripped-back and even more emotional.

Child - Rukhsana Merrise

Stick around 'til the end for standout track "Two Hearts."

Crisis - Phé

Let Phé draw you in with her soulful vocals; stay for the dark, hypnotic vibes.

"Numb" - Charlie Hanson

You'll be feeling anything but numb after listening to this track.
